[Samba] [smbclient] Fails sending pop-up message with -M

 From Debian 9 running Samba 4-5-16, I'd like to send a pop-up message 
to a Windows (7) host, but none of the following works:

smbclient -M \\WIN-PC "test"
smbclient -M //WIN-PC "test"
smbclient -M ////WIN-PC "test"
smbclient -M '\\WIN-PC' "test"

Would someone have a working example?

FWIW, the Windows host is running a Comodo firewall. Would I need to 
allow connection to a given TCP/UDP port?

Thank you.
